              The Corpse Walker is a collection of twenty-seven extraordinary interviews that opens a window, unlike any other, onto the lives of ordinary, often outcast, Chinese men and women. Liao Yiwu reconstructs conversations he had between 1990 and 2008 with a range of remarkable people:... a professional mourner, a human trafficker, a leper, an abbot, a retired government official, a former landowner, a mortician, a feng shui master, a former Red Guard, a political prisoner, a village teacher, a blind street musician, a Falun Gong practitioner and a corpse walker. The result is an idiosyncratic, powerful and dignified portrait of a people, a time and a place we might otherwise have never known.

              In China, the government continues to erase and distort the collective memory of the country to suit its all-encompassing political agenda.

              God Is Red: The Secret Story of How Christianity Survived and Flourished in Communist China
                

              God Is Red: The Secret Story of How Christianity Survived and Flourished in Communist China (EPUB ebook)

              By Yiwu, Liao

              In God is Red, Chinese dissident journalist and poet Liao Yiwu-once lauded, later imprisoned, and now celebrated author of For a Song and a Hundred Songs and The Corpse Walker-profiles the extraordinary lives of dozens of Chinese Christians, providing a rare glimpse into the unde...rground world of belief that is taking hold within the officially atheistic state of Communist China. Liao felt a kinship with Chinese Christians in their unwavering commitment to the freedom of expression and to finding meaning in a tumultuous society, even though he is not a Christian himself. This is a fascinating tale of otherwise unknown personalities thriving against all odds. God is Red will resonate with readers of Phillip Jenkins' The Lost History of Christianity and Peter Hessler's Country Driving.

              Liao's coverage of Christians allows truth to shine in the darkness. That's the beauty of his writings. --Liu Xiaobo, winner of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Chinese dissident author Liao Yiwu--the once lauded, later imprisoned, and now celebrated author of The Corpse Walker --profi...les the extraordinary lives of dozens of Chinese Christians, providing a rare glimpse into the burgeoning underground world of belief that is taking hold within the officially atheistic state of Communist China. A luminous writer, and not a Christian himself, Yiwu offers a uniquely objective and insightful perspective on the position Christians occupy in mainland China, in a book that readers of Philip Jenkins' The Lost History of Christianity as well as Peter Hessler's Country Driving will not want to miss.
